Lyrics[]

Pin-Pine (without announcer)[]

These vowels have a problem, and Silent E's to blame.
Instead of "ah", "eh", "ih", "aw", "uh", he makes them say their name.
He's changed their sounds to A and E and I and O and U.
With powers like that, just think about the damage he can do.
Silent E.
He changes cub into a cube.
Silent E.
He changes tub into a tube.
He changes twin to twine, he changes can into a cane.
And this brave man must stop him, before he strikes again.
Police Man: Silent E! Your vowel sound attention days are over! I'm calling you off to the slammer, but of course, you have the right to remain silent! Look, a note from Silent E! It says...
Man: I love that pin you're wearing. I'd love to have a closer look. Gee, thanks so much for sharing!
Police Man: Well, sure, well I don't see any harm in that!
Oh, yeah! Silent E!
He knew that pin would be just fine.
Silent E!
He changed it to a pine!
Silent E!
A story sad but true!
He's escaping out the window and there's nothing we can do!
Police Man: Well, Silent E! You may have slipped out of my grasp this time, but mark my words, I'll get you yet!

Trivia[]

  • The song has two variations: pin/pine and cap/cape.
  • When the announcer says, "It's a plan, it's a plane, it's Silent E man", this is a reference to the Superman phrase "It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman!"
